One of the biggest debates when it comes to hair, and the one I think every person, women especially, fight with themselves on- short hair or long hair. With it being the new year, most have the mentality of “new year, I need a change” and just in the last month I’ve seen SO many people come in to chop their hair off and it always looks PHENOMENAL. I’ve struggled myself with this battle, and the only way its to be won is if you actually do it….. soooo with that being said, what’s better? Short or long hair… Is there even a better?
From short bobs, to lobs, to asymmetrical pixies, these women pull off short(er) hair amazingly. “Lobs” have been the biggest hit in the salon recently, and I feel like that’s the safest transitional haircut when going from longer hair to short. (Maybe I’m just saying that because that’s what I did) So what is a “lob”? It pretty much translates to long bob- get it “lob”? Pictures 2 and 4 are perfect examples. Picture 1 is an asymmetrical bob, which is for someone who’s feeling a little brave. The woman in the picture originally had hair down passed her mid back, and had it all cut in one sitting. GO HER! Picture 3 (which I’m obsessed with) is an asymmetrical pixie, which is for the daring, adventurous soul. She came in with very curly, thick hair, not knowing what to do with it anymore, and decide this was the perfect style for her. And I completely agree. The asymmetrical pixie put focus on her prominent facial features Even though your hair’s short, theres so many cute hairstyles you can do, so don’t knock it till you try it 🙂
The best thing about long hair is you can practically do anything to it- waves, curls, straight, up, down, half up, braids, etc. Some people see long hair as “boring” but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can spice it up with color, throwing in some funky pops, or maybe just highlights to give the length some dimension (just as you can with short) Style wise, the limits are endless. Just have to play around and get comfortable with your own hair. Pinterest and YouTube are going to be your best friend’s while playing around with quick new hair styles.
So at the end of the day, what’s really best is what’s going to fit you. Whether it be short or long, the decision is yours. Try new styles out, chop some ends off, have fun with it. Hair always grows back 🙂
